hello thought you might be able to help me its my birthday soon and my boyfriend has offered to get a new digi camera for my b'day - also he wants to use it too for his mountain biking photos to catch him in mid air lol :lol: Any way it would be really nice to get one that takes good detailed close up pictures but I havent a clue where to start. All I know is that you need to buy one with a high pixel range or something?????? Any ideas, at the mo we have one that is 2.0 mega pixels and I have to do a seperate zoom after on the computer. I have always been interested in photography and studied it a little doing black and white photo's while on an art course at college. I would love to be able to take really artistic photo's but i bet the camera would be too expensive. My main reason now though is to take pictures of nailart and nail enhancements ;)

Hi!

I have the Olympus 300 mju, with 3.2 megapixels
My mum got one just before christmas so i had the chance to play before i bought one for myself. It is absolutely fantastic!
It has a great zoom and also has a black & white option.
It is really good for taking close up pictures of nail work - really clear, crisp images. also really easy to upload pics onto computers!

i can't remember the exact cost but i thinks its about £200

hope this helps!

mine is a 4 million pixel with macro mode for close ups, but for nails i still have to crop them on the pc to get them really close for the web, take them at 2/3 million and low resolution.
it has taken me ages to figure it all out myself, perhaps someone who is brilliant with digi`s and a computer wizard will answer you in a better way.
